know him? >> i knew him from the very beginning of my life at cbs, 1964. he was the executive producer of cbs evening news, the cronkite news, when i joined. shortly after he was fired, and was in a kind of limbo or siberia for a couple of years. i did a documentary for them in 1968. don was the nominal executive producer. so i have known him for a long time. when we came up with this idea of "60 minutes," he became a kind of willy loman. he put together a reel of all cbs reports using 10 or 15 minute segments, taking the best of each of them and putting together a reel he went shopping that around to every executive at cbs. he brought that to me, to others, trying to sell and get support for his idea of this thing he called "60 minutes." he had harry reasoner, the original host in, call this a pilot if you like. then he added mike wallace into the pilot. it was his relentless pursuit. they said, ok, we will do it. we will try. we will put you on at 6:00 on a sunday. so harry and i went on. later, harry left to go to abc and they brought me to be the other guy on "60 minutes." we were

a snap poll in terms of results from tonight's debate. cbs news did a flash poll of uncommitted voters on who they think won tonight's debate. 19% of those voters said the debate was a tie. 31% say that paul ryan won. 50% say that vice president biden won. we're going to be joined in a moment -- we've talked to a couple of people who are functioning as surrogates for the obama campaign tonight. we're going to be speaking with a supporter of ryan and romney in just a moment, congresswoman marsha blackburn in a moment. while we get her to a microphone, i want to get response from you guys to that poll. that comports my feelings about who won the debate. steve, as a republican, does that feel like a reasonable response? >> undecided voters, i certainly think it's in the realm of possibility. you have to look at where all the flash polls are. the thing to remember, just like last week, those undecided voters, they will break to the winner side over the next 48 hours. that lead will spread. if, in fact, there's a 20-point lead off of the flash polls on average with 20% undecided by the time

and independents. >> i will say this, you had a "cbs poll" right after the debate of undecided voters, people not made up their mind which is very small, small portion. electorate. by 50-32% margin, those voters believed joe biden won the debate. that is something very key. >> except there were four or five other snap polls. >> not of undecided voters. >> undecided voters cnn. >> cnn had totality of voters. >> the problem gets to what we're talking about what biden's mission was last night. if you're incumbent party and you're still worried about the base with three weeks to go before the general election you're in really tough shape. >> i'm not sure he was worried about the base. >> you just said that was the whole show last night. >> no. no. energizing the base. wasn't getting the base to exactly support, wasn't worried about the base not dropping off and coming out to vote. the base was dispirited because president obama, i thought president obama did not come out and defend in full throated way what the debase wanted to defend you concluding myself. doesn't mean the base is staying home o

and cbs. in many states we have higher ratings. the difference between us and them, it's under the same category, is the language. we transmit in a different language, however, now we're changing that. >> what do you mean? >> we're changing that now because now we have the joint venture with abc and we are going to be doing the same thing that we're doing but do it in english so we can make sure we have all the market. the special thing about that is it's not only for that sector of latinos who is more english dominant and prefers to speak english, but i think it actually contributes to the society and to democracy in this country so that everyone who speaks english in this country understands who latinos are, what are the issues that affect us. maybe they need to know what's going on with their neighbors south of the border. you know, here you have this continent that sometimes it seems that people in the north don't like to look south and they don't realize that we are one continent and that there's, what, over 300 million people that speak spanish and that affects us economically dir

over the last few days, in our polling, in ohio, florida, and virginia, in the cbs/"new york times" polling, it feels like everything has moved to what i would call preconvention, right, before there was a democratic bounce, and before there was any sort of romney bounce, where this is a close race, but when you look in the battleground states there seems to be still a small advantage for the president. look at ohio. i think the most important number of the polls we had today was this early voting result that we found where one in five ohioans have already voted and the president's winning 2-1 among those folks that have already voted. that's a big organizational advantage. he's banking some vote. that's a big deal, and that's an important result to look at. i also think there's some other trend here that i want to keep an eye on which is it seems romney got a bigger bounce in the national polls than we're seeing in some of these states and could it be that there was more room for him to grow in the non-battleground states than there was in the battleground states where there's bee

in europe and daniel schorr, then of the cbs evening news senior foreign correspondent reported that barry goldwater's planned trip to europe was really a clandestine effort to meet up with neo-nazi elements in hitler's stomping ground in order to coordinate the fall campaign. goldwater actually sued and won, one of the very few times we get libeled or slander by the press and get punishment for. since 1987 the media research center has been documenting these attacks and providing fodder for people like me and others to sort of turn tables on them. the trend has always been the more you admire a leader, a conservative leader like goldwater or reagan or clarence thomas or jesse helms or rush limbaugh, the entire congressional class of 1994 or the tea party movement mostly of united states western civilization, basically anything that is on the side of truth, justice and the american way, we get demonized for it and treated as if it were some sort of otherworldly evil creatures. so tonight we give you some snippets down memory lane of the past 25 years. ♪ >> i think liberalism lives, the n
